GAZA (Reuters) - Israeli tank fire struck a house in the Gaza Strip Tuesday, injuring at least five people, Palestinian medics said.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the report, but said 4 rockets had been fired at Israel during the day from the enclave, which is ruled by the Islamist Hamas group. Israel launched a series of air strikes in Gaza Monday, wounding 19 people, following a barrage of mortar and rocket fire.
